it's a highly unstable air mass. there are thunderstorms around that could be capable of rotation. we'll have to watch it very closely for you. by the way, there's a flood watch in effect area wide through the day, but until 10:45 for counties right along the bay on the western shore. there's a flash flood warning. what a day it's been and we have a lot or rain coming our way. we're taking a break and we'll be right back with more news be right back with more news from ,,,,,,
two governors, two different approaches. even in good times bob ehrlich did not make education a priority. he increased college tuition by 40%, cut school construction by $200 million, and ehrlich voted to eliminate the department of education while serving in congress. but martin o'malley, even in the toughest of times, has made record investments in public schools, new school construction, and o'malley froze college tuition four years in a row. with martin o'malley, our children always come first.
up next, a tornado in southern maryland. we have this covered. mike us a out in the weather. >> reporter: i'm mike schuh in fells point, a live report we we return. it's a wet oned on a messy one. we'll go down the long list of problems. let's send it over to marty. there's a lot of problems because of the weather. here's first warning doppler radar. believe it or not, the heaviest rain in the region is not where we have the tornado warning, but that's not unexpected. we'll take a look at the watches warnings and advisories when we return right after this. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
there is a tornado warning for two counties in southern maryland or the parts of two counties and sharon had a morning long traffic problem on interstate 70. first, marty has first warning weather. >> this is such breaking weather news. i'm still looking at it. all right. fine. the weather has gotten wild over the past 15 minutes. first and foremost, let's take a look at first warning doppler radar. and let me show you that area wide we are getting an have been getting soaking rain. we will have soaking rain in the hear for the next few hours, a slight break during the midday and early afternoon and equally heavy rain this afternoon and tonight. you can see where the real heavy duty rain s it's primarily on a north south line extending from the mason dixon line, at this point harford
county, coming inland low of annapolis, shooting through southern maryland. i need to go to the watch, warning and advisory graphic. the immediate concern until 7:00, another 25 minutes there's a tornado warning in effect for portions of calvert and eastern st. mary's county. i need top point out there is now a flash flood warning in effect until 10:00 for cecil, care row line, kent and queen anne's county, now cecil, caroline, yours ends at 10. pg and st. mary's ends at 10:45. there's a flood watch in effect. there's also a tornado watch in effect for all counties except garrett and western allegany
county until 1:00. so many warnings have hit this graphic. it's disguising the crimson as opposed to the bright red which is the tornado watch. the tornado watch in effect until 1:00. now back to first warning doppler radar there's soaking rains. what we're trying to do is go down here to southern maryland. you don't have to have huge rain to have a tornado warning. it's a precursor to rotation. what we're going to look for right now is -- see, this is true doppler. the greens are moving towards you. the red's away should you see red and green, we're talking winds moving towards and away in the same location that would be rotation. so clearly here just to the east of packs river, elliot, just northwest of deal island,
we corks indeed, be seeing some rotation. we'll have to watch this very closely for you. we are expecting before this is said and done with at least three to six inches of rain. there's one forecast that actually calls for a band of rain out to the west of potentially 12 inches in some locations near the shenandoah valley. >> the list continues to grow. here's sharon gibala at wjz traffic control. >> a bunch of accidents, flooding and delays. watch for an accident that continues to block all lanes of 70. an overturned milk truck. traffic is backed up to baltimore national pike. why can take southbound 29. another one at 795, a car spun out. the second one on the northwest side outer loop. that one approaching the jfx.
83 northbound just past belfast, there's an accident and another one at liberty, one in the city at loch raven. watch for a truck fire 95 southbound at mountain road. in the meantime, flooding reported in the whitemarsh area. we're told there's two feet of water in the road. do not attempt to drive through it. flooding at middle river, water in the underpass. there is a look at your speeds and drive times for the beltway. only 20 miles an hour. that's partially due to an earlier accident that we had. there's a lock at 70 and 29, still no eastbound traffic getting by. there's a look at 95 at mountain road where we have a truck fire. if you take the rails we are hearing delays on the brunswick and camden leans. this traffic report is brought to you by toyota.
toyota, buy right the first time. toyota moving forward. back over to you. the weather is at the top of the news. there's a tornado warning in southern maryland. the tornado watch is almost statewide. most people will be dealing with the serious flood threat, high water, standing water and mike schuh continues oir coverage in fell -- our coverage in fells point. >> reporter: you already heard from sharon there's flooding. there's a contingency plan in place. baltimore city five crews have been working to clean storm drains there. 's or than 50,000 of them. >> the biggest weapon you have in the fight against flooding is really a broom. go out there, sweep that material up and put it in the trash can. >> reporter: workers monitor live pictures for any problem. >> we'll focus on flooding and the winds.
we'll be okay on storm surge. >> reporter: flooding is guaranteed but not expected to as bad pass 2003. residents know about flooding all too well. >> anytime there's a high tide it floods. >> i try to stay away if i know it's going to rain. >> reporter: with flooding comes power outages. >> we could see several thousand power outages as a result of whole trees and limbs coming down. >> have a preparedness kit. have a flashlight. have a radio. have some water and nonperishable food. >> reporter: they call them flash floods for a reason. they come up so quickly. if you see a large puddle covering a roadway, it's a good idea not to drive through it. reporting at fells point. don, back to you. >> remember, wjz is always on. for constant updates your loan live look at radar and an
updated forecast, go to wjz.com. first, the national transportation safety board is in a maryland suburb of washington, d.c. this morning investigating the commuter bus crash yesterday afternoon in bethesda that killed the driver of a bus. at least a dozen others are injured including some children. the pennsylvania-based tour bus plunged off a skyramp along interstate 270 and fell 45 feet down an embankment. of the 12 people injured two have life-threatening injuries. doctors say that number could have been much, much higher. >> the thing that stands out about this accident is the fall seems pretty significant many the mechanism, the physics behind. it i'm surprised there weren't more severe injuries. >> the driver is identified as 66-year-old joseph clabaugh of hanover, pennsylvania. his body is now at the state medical exam are's office --
examiner's office. we continue to watch the watches and warnings. st. mary's county has now been dropped from the tornado warning. it's now a calvert county issue. take a look at the grafnlgt -- graphic. this is not the first front warning we had during the -- front warning we had overnight. st. mary's dropped. now calvert county under a tornado warning. doppler weather radar. what we're seeing is steady and heavy rain. you don't necessarily have to have a ton of rain to have a tornado warning in effect. i'm kind of looking, skirting the chesapeake bay and looking across the bay over to the eastern shore. what i'm trying to see, this is a true doppler.
we're look for rotation. we're looking for air moving towards upand away to you. i got to be honest. there's so much going on. it's really just on a run. clearly there's a rotation issue over in calvert county at this time. let's go back to doppler and show you the reason why, how much rain has fallen. indeed, we are getting pummeled. this is not the first time today this is going to happen. we'll get a bit of a break during the mid-dave. then it will come at us as hard and as frequent later on. i want to go to the watch, warning, advisory graphic. after talking about the tornado warning, another 17 minutes for calvert county, there's 10 counties in maryland, including the district of columbia with flash flood warnings in effect. 10:00, cecil. flash flood until 10:45. anne arundel, charles,
montgomery, pg, st. mary's an the district of columbia. we also need to point out because at this point the bright green are the flash flood warnings covering the crime son watch. there's a tornado watch in effect until 1:00 because of this very tropical very unstable air mass for all counties in maryland except frederick, washington, garrett and allegany counties. okay. i think we've covered the breaking news of the past 15 minutes. coming up, we'll take a first warning look at this day. we'll have sharon gibala and coming up coffee with actor ryan reynolds. his latest movie "buried" is kind of creepy. he's buried with a candle and a cell phone. therein lies the plot.
ryan reynolds talks to us about "buried." the morning edition continues [ female announcer ] remember this promise? [ man ] martin o'malley -- taking on bg&e to stop the rate hikes. [ female announcer ] never happened -- your bill went up 72%. and o'malley gave the bureaucrat who approved the rate hike a huge raise. now martin o'malley promises we're moving forward. the fact of the matter is our economy is doing much better now. [ female announcer ] really? nearly 7,000 marylanders lost their jobs last month. four years ago, martin o'malley misled us. now he's just making stuff up. bob ehrlich. we can do better.
we covered the watches, warnings and advisories. i can't stress to you enough how much rain will fall. as a matter of fact, let's take a look at a graphic. we basically have a floor easter hitting us. no long area tropical depression. the national hurricane center has said good-bye to the storm. no other advisories from that locale to be issued. we're looking at a big nor'easter. the strongest side is to the east and northeast of the center of the low. that's bringing the vortex right over western maryland. go back to first warning doppler radar. i want you to know there's not a lot happening down the lower 50 quarter over in delaware.
right now it's a bit calm. the low is actually out here. here's the vortex of that energy. let's go back to the graphics. this is locally 12 inches. that's going to be real extreme. we are solidly in a three to six inch nine band. we're getting rain this morning, a break in the afternoon. then we'll get hammered again tonight. we'll also talk about wind. it's a breeze. we could see gusty winds. 68 is the barometer. this area of low pressure passes by the region. once the low, the second low, southerly low exits, 75 today and starts to taper rain off, the overnight low of 59, skies clear out, a high of 72. fells point festival this weekend, racing boats.
beautiful conditions statewide. saturday, sunday and monday, fall-like temperatures. don, take it away. >> the rains made sharon busy. she's at wjz traffic control. it's not a great day. we have an accident 70 on eastbound. 70 is enclosed. an overturned milk tanker truck. traffic is backed up with a detour at southbound u.s. 29. an accident working on the northwest outer loop, a car spun out. another one, a police vehicle involved. watch for a crash in randalls town and east spring lane add loch ray vefnlt then the southbound planes at mountain road blocking the right lane to emmer ton. flooding on westbound pulaski at ebenezer.
